NASA has found something new outside our solar system and tonight Dutch time the discovery will be made public by the Washington headquarters.

The space organization announces this in a press release.

The Americans are still cautious with details about the discovery, but do make it known that they are planets orbiting around stars other than the sun: so-called exoplanets.

Hope for life

The researchers are always looking for habitable exoplanets, where life can be.

In August last year, the European Southern Observatory (ESO) discovered the exoplanet Proxima B, which is also called Earth 2.0 and may contain liquid water.

Ask NASA questions directly

Whether the new discovery is of the same caliber, we will come tonight 19.00 Dutch time to know. You can follow the live broadcast on NASA's own channel.
